Lesion of inferior alveolar
nerve always occurs in the case of mandibular angle fracture.
On presentation, a firm, 2 x 1 x 1-cm polypoid, mucosalized mass with a broad-based stalk was attached in the midline to the apex of the inferior alveolar
ridge (figure 1).
Haas conducted a 21-year retrospective study of paresthesia of the lingual and inferior alveolar

nerve alter bilateral sagittal ramus osteotomy: a retrospective study of 68 patients.
Studies have shown that the mandibular bone in ORN patients, when compared to irradiated but nonosteoradionecrotic bone and to nonradiated bone, suggests that the inferior alveolar
artery was obliterated or damaged to the extent that ischemia (low oxygen supply) occurred in the tissues in the area of distribution.
Dental Nerve Block Injection Simulator, which teaches dental residents how to perform an inferior alveolar
nerve (IAN) block - one of the most common but more difficult dental injections, since the exact location for the injection must be identified by nearby anatomical landmarks, and with a restricted range of sight.
The artery in the RMC is the branch of inferior alveolar

nerve involvement is presented.
Size of the sympheseal graft is limited by roots of the mandibular anterior teeth and the pogonion, while the primary limitation of the ramus graft is the inferior alveolar
Tooth related factors include existing infection (pericoronitis), type of impaction, depth of impaction, relationship to inferior alveolar
nerve, density of surrounding bone and associated pathology like cyst or neoplasm (8).
